Apple Watch Series 5 Hands-on Review | Still The Best

Most of the new features in the Apple Watch Series 5 actually come as part of WatchOS 6 — meaning that they’re available on other watch models too. Perhaps the biggest update to the Apple Watch Series 5 comes in the form of a new always-on display — which allows you to sneak glances at your watch and see the information without having to explicitly raise your wrist.

I feel like sleep tracking should be a WatchOS update/feature. Definitely want to upgrade to this watch from my Series 1.
AutoSleep works to track your sleep been using it on my 4

is this worth upgrading?
Sleeping tracking is part of watchOS NOT HARDWARE
Can u disable the always on display and get 3 days of battery life?
What color is that sportsband? ty
Can you turn off that display always on feature?

I made the series 4 a stocking stuffer for everyone in the family last Christmas. Guess I’ll be doing the same thing this year with the 5.
I travel overseas 2-3 times a year, on occasion one may not be able to charge it daily. Going without a timepiece for a day could be a real pain. Has anyone traveled overseas with it? Do you leave it charging while out for a long dinner and evening out after being on the go all day?

Samsung galaxy 46mm already has been killing it with the always on display plus many other features,not to mention better looking

Really gimmicky. Just buy a watch that tells the time and save the rest.

I wonder if the series 4 will have a software update for the always on feature?

Never had an apple watch im interested in this one but should i go with series 4 or get this one?
Pang Christian
Pang Christian:
Just bought the series 4 few days ago here in AU, should i return it and wait for the series 5 to come?
Sonic Magnus
Sonic Magnus:
can you talk to people from the watch itself when you receive and make calls?
Miguel Afonso
Miguel Afonso:
I think the battery life is still too poor for sleep tracking. Imagine: You charge your watch before you go to bed and then have to charge it again when you wake up otherwise you will run out of battery during the day.
Apple Watch will always be the Best Watch.

You can’t beat a company that constantly improves the device even from a CPU stand point. Others companies can only compete for 2nd place.

Same thing for the iPad Pro!

Apple ran out of ideas.. Who the hell uses compass..? I see bunch of unnecessary functions that 80% of regular users not even gonna try.
This is Apple without Steve Jobs. Come on Apple, be innovate again!

Apple Watch Series 5 Summary:

No wrist flashlight facing fingers (like the L5 from Microwear)

No speaker improvement

No round watch design option

No better battery

No better water resistance

No sleep tracking

No blood glucose monitor

No camera

No carbon monoxide detector

No innovation

No purchase from me

The only thing thing they added was:

1. Always on display


2. Built in compass 🧭

Apple Watch Series 5 is basically the Series 4 with just those 2 things. Really boring & a historic letdown to diehard fans. Pay attention @TimCook

It feels like gay at wearing that watch. And track the period of who?
Damn the ceramic looks good in this video! Makes me want to cancel my SS preorder and get that instead! I just think the white will be really distracting

Gay watches. No more to say

I'm giving away an iphone 11 and an iphone 11 pro on my channel! 📱✨
Apple is fucking lame. They keep the screen on the whole time, and call it a new watch. Smh
